Oscar takes Lampard's No.8 shirt & Hazard
No.10 as Chelsea reveal new squad
numbers
The attacking duo will be wearing new numbers
in the 2014-15 season while Thibaut Courtois has
been handed the No.13, with Petr Cech keeping
hold of the No.1 jersey
Aug 15, 2014 16:25:00
Chelsea have announced
their squad numbers for the
upcoming season, with Oscar
taking the No.8 shirt
previously worn by club
legend Frank Lampard.
The England international
made the shirt his own during his 429 Premier
League appearances at Stamford Bridge, during
which time he scored 147 top-flight goals.
The jersey was so well associated with Lampard,
widely regarded as the club's greatest ever player,
that skipper John Terry had led calls for the shirt
number to be retired after the 36-year-old left the
club on a free transfer this summer.
But Brazilian playmaker Oscar will now have the
honour of wearing the No.8 shirt, giving up the
No.11 to allow Didier Drogba to reclaim it.
"Didier is a Chelsea legend and a senior player. I am
happy for him to take the 11 and for me to take the
8," Oscar told the club's official website. "Lamps is
another legend at this club and I hope I will be as
successful in the shirt as he was."
Eden Hazard will also be wearing a new number in
the coming campaign, with the Belgium winger
taking on the vacant No.10 from the departed Juan
Mata.
Elsewhere, Thibaut Courtois has been handed the
No.13 jersey, with Petr Cech holding onto the No.1
despite increasing speculation regarding the Czech
Republic international's future at the club.
New signing Cesc Fabregas will wear the No.4 shirt
vacated by David Luiz while former Atletico Madrid
duo Filipe Luis and Diego Costa have been given the
No.3 and No.19 respectively.
Young defenders Kurt Zouma and Nathan Ake have
impressed in pre-season, and as a result have been
rewarded with the No.5 and No.6 jerseys while
Victor Moses takes No.18 following Romelu Lukaku's
departure to Everton.
